A custom rom is usually flashed via either the internal or external memories, I prefer the external as you have the flexibility to remove it and copy another over if your phone is in a non bootable state.
Once you're rooted and have a custom recovery installed all you need to do is copy it over and flash it, no need for odin at that point, unless you want to flash a modem or bootloader.
Perhaps when android 5 comes along we'll be updating both the modem and bootloader but until that time you're just fine with what you have, a super wipe bare in mind will wipe everything, no OS left at all, so keep your ROM on your SD Card so you can flash it later.
Only reason you would need a super or mega wipe is if theres parts of your OS that have become undeletable or corrupt.
I wouldn't bother, just clean up your SD card (Internal) whilst connected to your PC and then perform a full wipe from within recovery and cache and dalvic, then flash a rom.
But if things are functional you don't even need to do that.

What state is your phone currently in?
IF it's stock then you will need to follow the instructions which are on the Foxhound main thread, I believe it's copied from another thread, NeatRom, if you follow it correctly your warranty will remain intact.
IF you're already rooted and have a custom recovery installed then simply copy the rom to your SD and flash it via recovery, you may need a separate kernel in order for the phone to boot properly. So grab that before wiping.
Always make a back up so you can revert back if things go wrong.
